Volvo Trucks Middle East reveals growth in sales in 2015
Volvo Trucks Middle East announced an increase in vehicles sold in 2015 compared to the previous year.
Full year sales were up in most of Volvo Trucks’ Middle East markets including Bahrain, Kuwait, Lebanon and Qatar, more than doubling sales in all four markets and a double digit growth in Oman, which is Volvo Trucks third largest market in the Middle East.
Sales in Jordan were up by 50%, while Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were (once again) Volvo Trucks’ two biggest markets in the Middle East.
The end of the year witnessed significant activity with the opening of a new AVI production facility in King Abdullah Economic City in Saudi Arabia in co-operation with Zahid Tractor.
Lars-Erik Forsbergh, president of Volvo Trucks Middle East, said: “The opening of the new production facility in Saudi Arabia demonstrated our on-going commitment to the region. We will continue to build on this in 2016, by developing our network, by ensuring we offer customers premium products tailor-made to suit their needs, premium services and financing, and to add value to our customers’ businesses.”
